Cornell senior guard Kate Sramac has committed to William & Mary for her upcoming graduate year.

Sramac told Ivy Hoops Online she is headed for Williamsburg to finish her collegiate career after leading the Big Red in assists, steals and three-point shooting percentage as a junior in 2019-20.

“I chose William and Mary because the combination of great basketball, a beautiful campus, and a graduate program that I am really excited about and fit me well,” said Sramac, who will be pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree.

It’s been over a calendar year since Sramac has played due to the cancellation of the 2020-21 season amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s worth remembering that the Pittsburgh native was an underrated force in the Big Red backcourt, establishing herself as a ball distributor and effectively aggressive defender as she started 44 of her final 45 games at Cornell after playing her way into the starting lineup early in her sophomore campaign.

Sramac stood out throughout a disappointing Cornell showing in 2019-20 (10-16, 3-11 Ivy), averaging 7.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists (eighth in the Ivy) and 2.0 steals (third in the Ivy) per contest.

William & Mary opted out of the remainder of the season in February due to concerns over student-athlete health and well-being after going 6-7 (3-5 in Colonial Athletic Association play). William & Mary was poised for at least a WNIT berth prior to the cancellation of the 2019-20 season due to the pandemic, with the team posting a program record 21 wins.
